Weekly Wise Woman Herbal Apprenticeship Program
Accepting Applications for 2023
Please be willing to make a minimum eight-week commitment to the Weekly Apprenticeship Program. There are three eight-week sessions available. Each session is focused on a different season. This intensive program meets one day per week. Participants can join a single eight-week session or more. Apprentices who have completed all three seasons will receive a Certificate of Completion and be eligible for an internship position with Moonwise Herbs.
The first eight weeks are focused on incorporating herbs into daily life to promote health. Subsequent sessions build on this knowledge and participants develop a first aid kit, learning to apply herbs for common injuries and ailments. Additionally, we will harvest plants of the season. Generally speaking, this means leaves and buds in the spring, flowers in the summer, seeds, and roots in the fall, and from the pantry in the winter. Participants who wish to receive additional guidance can work with Linda for 1-3 years.'
Dates for the 2023 programs:
Session 1: Spring: March 29, April 5, 12, 19, 26 May 3, 10, 17
Session 2: Summer: June 7, 14, 21 July 5, 12, 19, 26 August 2
Session 3: Late Summer/Fall: August 23, 30 September 6, 13, 27 October 4, 11, 18
These sessions will meet on Wednesdays (9am-5pm) in Albion, WI (just outside of Edgerton) at Linda’s home (address to be provided upon acceptance into the program.) Some days may end earlier to accommodate Linda’s evening teaching schedule. Participants will be welcome to participate in the evening program if they would like to accompany Linda.
For a comprehensive learning experience, participate in multiple sessions. A discount will be offered to those who participate in more than one session. Apprentices who have completed all three seasons will receive a Certificate of Completion and be eligible for an internship position with Moonwise Herbs.
Apprentices are also welcome to participate as a helper in other programs that are being offered during their session. Look at our calendar, choose the programs you would like to participate in, and submit a list to Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a single eight-week session, the cost sliding scale is $525-$595 which includes instruction, whole & wild food lunch with some materials for specific lessons. Participants receive discounts on residential programs and are welcome to join community workshops as part of their apprentice fee. Register for all three weekly sessions, with a full payment of $1,395.00. To receive this discount, you must register for 3 sessions at one time.
Be sure to include the session/s you are registering for as well as your complete contact information. Once I receive your Intention and payment, we will set up a phone interview to determine whether this program is a good match for you and you for working with me. We will be working closely together and it is in both our interests to connect ahead of time in order to answer questions, address concerns and be open to the mystery. I look forward to hearing from you!!
If we agree this is the program for you and you for it, you will be expected to send the program balance at least three (3) weeks prior to arriving for your apprenticeship, unless other arrangements have been made.
